Right! Not only a core of a few upstream authors are affected, but also
downstream distributions (where we have to deal with numerous build
issues), and final users (who may loose the possibility to use some nice
software...). If you guys could find a solution to try to work together
again, and merge back both projects, that'd be best for everyone.
